Oakland celebrates its diverse community, artistic vibe, beautiful scenery, locally owned shops, multi-cultural cuisine and civic pride. Located on the east side of the Northern California Bay Area, Oakland is bordered by 19 miles of coastline to the west and rolling hills to the east.

It is conveniently located near three major airports and can be easily accessed via railway, bus or ferry. Measuring 78.5 square miles, Oakland is the eighth largest city in California. The Town is also home to numerous parks, family attractions, theaters, museums, live music venues and performing arts companies.
